We live in a wooded area where deer roam freely year round. All of my three cats have had ticks at one time or another. My long-haired calico female would get 1 or 2 a week, and I was constantly pulling them off. I have tried many products that purported to prevent ticks, yet my cats would still get them. Some of these products seemed to irritate the cats necks. Since putting Seresto Flea and Tick collars on my cats, I have not found one tick. The collars have not irritated the cats, and the cats don't seem to mind wearing them. I am definitely buying new ones since it has been almost 8 months since they were put on.
